Last December 18, we celebrated Gwen’s 1st birthday. We celebrated it ahead of time, 4 days before her birthday, because that’s the most ideal weekend, the next weekend is already the 24th and 25th, Christmas day. So right after I attended the NAPBAS in Malaysia, it’s time for another big big big celebration!
The party was held at Jollibee Shell Macapagal Northbound branch, this is different from the Blue Wave Macapagal branch. We chose this branch because they have bigger party area and they allow us to have a photobooth unlike the Blue Wave branch. I highly recommend this branch because they took extra effort to make the venue festive too, with colorful swags and balloons.
It’s a rainbow-themed party, by the way, but it’s not obvious, hehe. Jollibee doesn’t allow character-themed parties that’s why I just chose rainbow.
Total guests was 120 and we’re glad that we had an almost 95% attendance despite the rain. Package 4 menu for the adults and a chicken-spaghetti meal for the kids cost us around Php 23k. I took care of the loot bags which I will be posting on my next entries. Other party suppliers like the face paint and photobooth will also be posted.
Choosing to celebrate her first birthday at Jollibee is a practical choice for us, I guess. We don’t have to worry about entertaining guests because their party coordinators are there to entertain them plus the contests. No need to prepare and clean the house after party, just what we need during the holidays, a worry-free and stress-free party but just as FUN!
